We did a lot of shopping at GIVE Jewelry this year. The motto at GIVE is One Bracelet-> One Child-> One Week of Food. By the time we finished Christmas shopping, we'd fed thirteen children. Thirteen bracelets! I've now seen every style, from the simple friendship bracelets to an absolutely beautiful silver bracelet. I've shopped (and helped my kids shop) for people from 13 to 40-something.
I can't yet tell you exactly what we got and where it went, because there are some gifts left to give. What I can tell you is that as people receive these gifts, they're as excited as we are. The bracelets are lovely and the gift bag spells out the real gift: because of where it was purchased, the bracelet given feeds a child in Bali for a week.
Styles vary widely, as do price points. It's been nice to shop where there is something for everyone.
Give Jewelry is a sustainable movement to provide food for children in orphanages throughout Indonesia. The vision is simple: every bracelet purchased directly benefits kids in need. So no matter what type of bracelet you choose:friendship bracelets, charm bracelet, leather bracelet, beaded bracelet, cuff bracelets or any of the other great bracelets, you’re really choosing to make a difference.
We've now purchased a little bit of everything: friendship bracelets, charm bracelets, leather bracelets, beaded bracelets, cuff bracelets and silver bracelets. And we've been very, very pleased. (And I don't think I'm quite finished.) The pictures here don't begin to do justice to the silver bracelets. If there is still someone special on your list--a special someone gift to buy--do consider these. I was blown away when I opened the package to check ours out and I'm tickled to think of how it will be received. I know the recipients of these bracelets will care that there's more to the story: With every bracelet you purchase, Give Jewelry provides one week of nutritious food (that's 21 meals!) for a child in need. I'm not the only happy bracelet- buyer.
